Cambodia bans sports activities after spike in local COVID-19 cases

Cambodia on Monday ordered a temporary ban on all sports activities, as the kingdom has been enduring the third community COVID-19 outbreak since late last month.

“To prevent a large-scale community transmission of COVID-19, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS) proposes a temporary suspension of all gyms, sports clubs and sports gatherings in Phnom Penh Municipality, Kandal and Preah Sihanouk provinces as well as other concerned provinces from now until further notice,” MoEYS’s Minister Hang Chuon Naron said in a statement.

The Southeast Asian country has been sparing no effort to contain the third COVID-19 transmission in the community, which was detected on Feb. 20.
